Join us in Portland with Dr. Howard Waitzkin and his latest title Healthcare Under the Knife: Moving Beyond Capitalism for Our Health. Dr. Waitzkin will be talking about and signing copies from 1-3 PM! 

"The book is comprised of individual essays addressing the 'medical industrial complex,' the impact of privatization and cutbacks under neoliberalism, the nature of health-care work, and the intersections between health care and imperialism, both historically and at present."
